These are the skills you need:

- You should want to help other men with the infinite wisdom, knowledge, and findings you’ve garnered in your day-to-day life.
- You should be able to help us network Gear Patrol.
- You should like camaraderie, sarcasm, humor, and the internet.

- “[your name] – GP Crew” in the subject line.
- Brief explanation of why you’re qualified and what you’ll bring the collective voice of GP.
- Your favorite article on GP.
- A brief writing sample. Suggestion: a 200 word post appropriate to GP on any topic. It can be a product, a tip, some advice, or an opinion.
- A link to your favorite site and a short sentence explaining why.
- Something that’ll surprise us. We like surprises. Just no flaming bags of shit.
Once we’ve receive your application and things are copasetic, we’ll be in touch with details on next steps if you’re qualified. If not, well, we’ll inform you of that too.
Gear Patrol has been sent a lot of applicants since our last open call for crew members. Those of you who’ve applied before should resubmit with these guidelines under consideration. A pain, we know, but unlike college, the fact that you’ve already applied will only help.
